There are smart people in the Major League Baseball offices wondering if there’s hope of even discussing a potential move of the Rays to New Jersey or Southern Connecticut over certain protests from the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox and Phillies. (Peter Gammons/MLB.com)
When Peter Gammons talks (or writes), baseball people listen (or read). The Tampa Bay Rays to Connecticut? I believe this will happen as much as I believed the Patriots were coming to Hartford. And the Whalers are coming back. As in, not at all. Not even a little bit. But still, this is Gammons, the de facto commissioner of baseball.
This isn’t getting much play in Connecticut (I noticed the link on the “Capitol Report” web site. Kudos to Tom Dudchick.)
But they have taken notice of Gammo’s words in Florida. And they give them credence.
Oh, what the hell. Season tickets? Where do I sign up?
